The Greater D.C. Regional is the annual event for the FIRST Robotics Compeition (FRC). On January 3rd, FIRST unveiled RECYCLE RUSHSM. Teams received a “kit” of common parts that are used to build the core systems of the robot, but they won’t find an instruction manual! Students work with hundreds of components, including engineering mainstays such as programmable radio controllers, motors, electrical circuitry and mechanical parts. Following the six-week design and build phase, teams enter one of 50 regional competitions, including the Greater D.C. Regional.

The season culminates with the FIRST World Championship in St. Louis, MO. This event includes participants from all four programs: Jr. FIRST Lego League, FIRST Lego League, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition.
